Moving around Tuscany

Moving around Tuscany: car, ferry line, bus line and railways in Tuscany


Move around tuscanyTuscany is medium-sized region which can be crossed within a few hours. Generally the hardest part in getting from one place to the next depends on where you are headed: smaller villages are often only reachable by car or bus whose schedules might not be the most convenient. Aside from a few main roads that cross Tuscany, most of the roads are state or provincial with a single lane in each direction. Also, as many parts of Tuscany have hills, many roads wind up and down and around these hills - if you're driving, prepare to take your time and drive carefully.

Having said this, if you are planning on visiting only the main towns in Tuscany, the most convenient way to move around is with the train: the main station in each town is generally in the center so there is no need to worry about parking or finding the main sights. Train travel is also pretty affordable, in comparison to the costs of rental cars and gasoline these days.

BY BIKE
Touring Tuscany by bike has become very popular. There are many companies that organize bike tours, providing the bikes, meals and accommodation along the way. A minimum of good physical condition is required as many parts of Tuscany are hilly.
You can also bring your own bike but check with your airline for charges; very likely is has to be disassembled and packed for the journey.
Once you are in Tuscany, many trains have a carriage set aside for bicycles. Check on timetables for a bicycle sign. Eurostars do not have this service. In any case, you'll have to pay a supplement for the bike of around € 3,50 that lasts 24 hours from the time you stamp your ticket.
